^FICE OF THE MAY0R,| 

^ ..V.AGO, October 2, 1916.| 

To the Honorable, the City Council, 
City of >cago: 

Gentlemen — Since your ad- 
journment for the summer vaoa'- 
tion no occasion has arisen which 
warranted my calling you together. 
No untoward events have hap- 
pened, and the administration of 
the city departments has progressed 
along systematic, customary lines. 

As you are again assembled for 
an important year's work, I desire 
formally to bring to your notice 
certain information expressive of 
m.y views and recommendations 
on a number of subjects which 
should be considered or acted upon. 
In so doing, I renew my solicita- 
tions of sincere co-operation of the 



Council and its committees and the 
executive and administrative offi- 
cers of the city. 

We have the affairs of a gigantic 
business corporation to administer, 
employing 30,000 persons in all 
kinds of work. Differences of opin- 
ion will arise in this body over 
questions of municipal policy and 
as to legislation, and they should 
arise, and it is the bounden duty 
of every member of the Council 
to express his free opinion on 
every matter before it, if he feels 
it incumbent upon him to do so. 
I shall continue to preside in the 
future, as I hope I have in the 
past, With scrupulous fairness to 
all. I will preserve the individual 
and legislative right of every Alder- 
man so far as I am able, and as 
far as it is my prerogative to do so. 

For convenience of reference 1 
mention the matters which I wish to 
comment or communicate upon un- 
der separate headings, as follows : 

STATE LEGISLATION. 

The Fiftieth General Assembly 
of the State of Illinois, will convene 
in the city of Springfield on the 
first Wednesday in January, A. D. 
1917. All legislation that your 
Honorable Body deems advisable to 
have passed at this session of the 
General Assembly should be im- 
mediately prepared, in order that 
every opportunity may be afforded 
the citizens of Chicago to secure 
favorable action upon same. 

HOME RULE FOR CHICAGO. 

In my annual message of April 
26, 1916, I directed your attention 
to efforts then being made to se- 
cure for the people of the City 
of Chicago a decision of the courts 
bearing upon the regulation of pub- 
lic utilities within the corporate 
limits of the city. 

It is now my pleasure to inform 
Your Honorable Body that the Cir- 
cuit Court of Cook County has ren- 
dered a decision favorable to the 




October 2, 1916.

1507 



Lontention of the Corporation 
Counsel, holding that the city has 
exclusive jurisdiction m the mat- 
ter of the regulation of street rail- 
ways within the limits of the City 
of Chicago, and enjoining the State 
Public Utilities Commission from 
interfering w^ith such right. 
SUNDAY CLOSING. 
Considerable agitation arises 
from time to time, and particularly 
in the heat of campaigns, over the 
fair and impartial .enforcement of 
the State law requiring saloons to 
close on Sundays. Regardless of 
the conflicts of political fa^ctions 
and what they may say or do, of- 
flciaJly or unofficially, I stand, and 
will continue to stand, since I was 
advised as Mayor that it was my 
duty to require observance of this 
law, for its equal enforcement upon 
all 'persons whom it affects. My 
instructions to the police in this 
regard are explicit, and I shall hold 
commanding officers accountable, 
even to the extent of requesting 
their permanent removal from 
their positions if they fail in re- 
porting violations or securing com- 
pliance with the law, and I urge 
upon every member of the Coun- 
cil, in touch as they are with con- 
ditions in all sections of the city, 
to report to me personally if any 
partiality is shown by the police 
in the enforcem,ent of this statute. 
Contrary to insinuations in pub- 
lished statements which appear oc- 
casionally, the Mayor is not in 
league with those who seek to break 
or evade the law. The sooner par- 
tisan elements in Chicago, "wet'' 
or "dry," cease to make political 
capital out of what is not an open 
^ issue, but a settled matter of law, 
the better it will be for all con- 
cerned, and particularly those 
whose financial resources, great and 
small,- are invested in the liquor 
business. 

POLICE. 
From daily reports submitted to 
me by the General Superintendent 



of Police, it is shown that ther 
has been a net decrease in crime 
committed of 271/2% since my la; 
annual message. There has been 
larger decrease in robberies an 
burglaries. I consider the poln 
function, which protects every citi 
zen in his person, home and prop- 
erty, almost the fundamental rea- 
son for the collection of taxes. Law 
and order is the first requisite of 
government. The people are en- 
titled to security above everything 
else. I do not believe Chicago has 
enough policemen efficiently to 
patrol the two hundred square 
miles which this city covers. I urge 
upon the Council and its proper 
committees candid consideration of 
this vital subject. As a general es- 
timate, it is my opinion that the 
city requires one thousand addi- 
tional patrolmen, and new vehicle 
equipment in the way of automo- 
bile patrols and ambulances com- 
mensurate with the strength of the 
department. A modern police sig- 
nal svstem is needed in Chicago, 
and if we had same in operation, 
both patrol and detective work 
could be mot-e economically super- 
vised. I want again to call the 
Council's attention to the incon- 
sistencies of the present police, or- 
dinance, the defects in organiza- 
tion which it embodies;^ and the 
need for revision or amendment. 
WIDENING OF TWELFTH 
STREET. 
This improvement, one of the 
greatest ever undertaken by the 
city, is now making rapid progress 
toward final completion. Court pro- 
ceedings are through, and decisions 
rendered, and at the present time 
the city is acquiring title to the 
property involved, and is engaged 
in raising the buildings preparatory 
to the actual widening of the street. 
MICHIGAN BOULEVARD LINK. 
In my annual message I called 
the attention of Your Honorable 
Body to the status, at that time, 
of the widening of Michigan Ave- 



"Mpili?

October 2, 1 



Pine Street and Lincoln Park- 
I between East Randolph Street 
East Chicago Avenue, known as 
Boulevard Link, 
le work of accomplishing this 
r-ovement necessitates the tak- 
and damaging of many pieces 
aluable property, the construc- 

of a bridge across the river, 
paving, sidewalks and lighting 
^he estimated cost of $7,262,- 
00. 

he city is meeting with much 
Tiendly legal opposition in seek- 
; to expedite progress in this 
irk, entailing considerable use- 
ss expense. The city has no de- 
re to take or damage property 
/ithout giving adequate compensa- 
/ion. As a matter of necessity and 
public policy, the improvement it- 
self is a settled issue. Obstructing 
property owners are injuring them- 
selves by dilatory tactics, and are 
causing the city to spend a great 
deal of money, which they, as a 
portion of the taxpayers, have to 
stand in part, by registering tech- 
nical objections with the intention, 
if possible, of destroj^ing the pro- 
posed improvements. They are also 
postponing the day whien their 
property will achieve the basis of 
its future value. I ask the mem- 
bers of the City Council to do 
everything in their power, from 
the standpoint of municipal econ- 
omy, to diminish the opposition of 
the few, but resourceful and power- 
ful, property owners, who impede 
the advance of this work. 

IMPROVEMENT OF THE LAKE 
FRONT. 

Last summer has clearly demon- 
strated that the people of the City 
of Chicago and our summer visit- 
ors have at last come to realize 
what a great asset they have in 
Lake Michigan, which was evi- 
denced by the attendance of mill- 
ions of persons in the parks, bath- 
ing beaches and Municipal Pier, 
and every accessible spot border- 
ing upon the lake. 



It is my opinion the speedy 
velopment of the lake shore is 
sired by the people. With thi . 
mind, I have asked Mr. J.{ 
Hunt, the well-known architec 
draw up comprehensive plans iv. 
the development of the city's en- 
tire lake front, which plans will 
embody both commercial and re- 
creational features. These plans 
will be completed and submitted to 
Your Honorable Body in the very 
near future. 

. PARKS, PLAYGROUNDS AND 
BATHING BEACHES. 

I am in hearty accord with any 
steps which the Council may con- 
template to create new small parks, 
provide more playgrojinds and es- 
tablish additional bathing beaches, 
and to popularize these things so 
they can be reached and used as 
much of the year as possible by the 
greatest number of people. I be-- 
lieve the voters will approve bond 
issues and sanction the expenditure 
of all public funds needed to ex-, 
tend healthful moral recreation fa- 
cilities. I am particularly partial 
to the claims of the great West 
Side for extensive improvements in 
this line. 

ADJUSTMENT OF GAS RATES. 

The period fixed in the ordinance 
for the price of gas has expired, 
and it becomes necessary for Your 
Honorable Body to at once consider 
the provisions of a new ordinance 
regulating the price of this com- 
modity to the gas consumers of 
Chicago. In my inaugural message, 
I requested the confirmation of a 
select committee of the Council, 
whose duty it would be to see that 
the people's interest in the pend- 
ing suits to secure permanent price 
reductions and the return of re- 
funds due them, was vigilantly pro- 
tected. I believe this committee 
has rendered as efficient and faith- 
ful service as circumstances attend- 
ant upon the delays of litigation 
would permit.

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1509 



In my message of December 10, 
1915, I transmitted a letter from 
the officials of the Gas Company, 
and further expressed my views on 
this matter, which was published 
and referred to your committee on 
Gas, Oil and Electric Light. Since 
then, the Peoples Gas, Light & 
Coke Company has proposed to the 
city an adjustment outside of court 
of th^ ten million dollar rebate to 
which the citizens of Chicago are 
entitled, and an amicable settlement 
of the entire controversy between 
the city and the company relative 
to the quality, price and service of 
gas. I earnestly beseech upon the 
part of the Council speedy and 
painstaking consideration of the 
present status of ^his subject, that 
negotiations may be concluded for 
the ultimate benefit of the consum- 
ers. 

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 

I have consistently urged action 
in the matter of bettering our 
transportation facilities and reliev- 
ing congestion. I first mentioned 
the subject in my inaugural mes- 
sage, and in my special message 
of October 4, 1915, went to consid- 
erable length in discussing the 
matter. Also in my annual mes- 
sage of April 26 of this year, 1 
urged the necessity of an early re- 
port from those working upon the 
subway problem. 

The Chicago Traction and Sub- 
way Commission, shortly after its 
creation by your honorable body, 
secured offices in this city and in- 
stalled a working staff of assist- 
ants, and commenced the work in- 
volved in the duties assigned to 
them. I understand that since that 
time this work has been diligently 
prosecuted, that the data neces- 
sary for the consideration of the 
Commission, and bearing upon the 
questions to be dealt with in their 
report, have been compiled, and 
that the Commission is now en- 
gaged in working out a concrete 
plan for the betterment of trac- 



tion service. It is to be hoped that 
this report will be such as to fur- 
nish the basis for a practical and 
final solution of the transportation 
problem. 

It is important that the Com- 
mission and the Local Transporta- 
tion Committee accelerate the work 
as rapidly as is consistent with the 
public interest, in order that the 
labor of .investigation and prepar- 
ation of plans shall bear fruit m 
an early solution of the problem 
of securing more adequate and 
complete transportation facilities 
foi" the people of the city of Chi- 
cago. In a discussion of this nrat- 
ter recently with Mr. Parsons, of 
the Commission, he assured me that 
their report would be completed 
and submitted to Your Honorable 
Body during the present month of 
October. 

MUNICIPAL TUBERCULOSIS SANI- 
TARIUM. 

» I am informed by the City Comp- 
troller that under the new manage- 
ment the cost of maintenance per 
patient has been reduced, and the 
efficiency of the institution .in- 
creased and more patients cared 
for, in spite of the prevailing high 
prices of all Articles of subsistence. 
At a later date, when complete re- 
ports of .investigations lare in my 
hands, I will cover the subject of 
this institution in a more detailed 
manner. 

NEIGHBORHOOD CONSERVATION. 

The growth of Chicago during the 
seventy-nine years of its corpor- 
ate existence, has been so rapid and 
amazing as to completely alter, 
several times, the character of im- 
provements and the class of resi- 
dents and industries in its con- 
tinually changing local neighbor- 
hoods scattered all over the city. 

This has been lespecially detri- 
mental, not only to the physical ap- 
pearance of neighborhoods, but to 
the highest efficiency in the use and 
stability of property, and has 



■ill

caused the sacrifice and suspension 
of real estate values running into 
millions of dollars. 

The beauty, usefulness and pro- 
ductiveness of some of the cele- 
brated cities of the old world, such 
as Paris, Berlin and Copenhagen, 
is due to the effective plans and 
regulations for the use of proper- 
ty which are followed for the good 
of the whole. 

This will become the most won- 
derful city in the world at no dis- 
tant date, and sound and harmoni- 
ous restrictions, fair to everybody 
concerned, can by mutual co-oper- 
ation, in a spirit of municipal pride, 
coupled with true civic loyalty, be 
imposed upon the purposes for 
which land to be used in the fu- 
ture shall be devoted. 

To study and work out concrete 
suggestions in this matter for the 
scientific upbuilding of the city and 
the protection of individual homes 
and the stimulation and iencour- 
agement of wholesale and retail 
merchants and industrial plants, 
large and small, I have apointed 
the following commission who will 
serve wthout compensation or any 
expense whatsoever to the city gov- 
ernment, and report the progress of 
their labor at a subsequent date. 

Charles Bostrom, Commissioner 
of Buildings, 

Michael J. Faherty, President 
Board of Local Improvments, 

Dr. John Dill Robertson, Com- 
missioner of Hiealth, 

Samuel A. Ettelson, Corporation 
Counsel, 

Aid. George Pretzel, Chairman 
Council Committee on Buildings. 

This commission will add such 
further advisory members to • its 
strength as it deems expedient to 
achieve practical ends. 

ECONOMY. 

There is no question but that the 
city confronts a serious problem in 
apportioning its financial resources 



to its fast growing requirements. 
The question of waste disposal, due 
to the filling in of dumps, and the 
need for incinerators and loading 
stations and lequipment, are press- 
ing. Whether these matters, to- 
gether wth additional police pro- 
tection, can be cared for out of the 
corporate fund, are questions for 
the Finance Committee and the 
Council to consider. I urge the 
heads of departments to exercise 
the utmost prudence in paring 
down their estimates for the com- 
ing year to absolute necessities. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, September 27, 191 6.| 
To the Honorable, the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I herewlith return 
without my approval an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
July 10, 1916, and appearing on 
pages 1265 and 1266 of the Journal 
of the Council Procedings of that 
date, ordering and directing the 
Commissioner of Public Works to 
enter into a lease in the name of 
and on behalf of the City of Chi- 
cago with John Z. Vogelsang Co., 
a corporation, for the term of nine- 
ty days, and also to enter into an- 
other lease with the same concern 
for the term of nine years from the 
date of the expiration of the first 
lease, of space on the east six 
hundred feet and the west three 
hundred feet of the Municipal Pier, 
to be used for the exclusive pur- 
pose of conducting thereon a 
restaurant, lunch counters and 
stands wherein and upon which 
may be sold food, non-alcoholic 
beverages, cigars, tobacco, confec- 
tionery, popcorn, peanuts, news- 
papers, magazines, souvenirs, post- 
al cards, refreshments and other 
articles of a similar nature, to the 
sale of which the Commissioner of 
Public Works shall, from time to 
time, first give his consent in writ- 
ing, at a rental of not less than 
eighteen (18%) per cent of the 
gross receipts derived from the sale 
of the commodities and articles sold 
by the said John Z. Vogelsang Co. 
on said space. 

I withhold my approval of the 
said ordinance for the reason that 
I am advised by the Corporation 



Counsel that there is grave doubt 
as to the validity of the same 
under the existing law. 

During the past season the Com- 
missioner of Public Works granted 
a permit to the John Z. Vogelsang 
Co. to operate a restaurant on the 
Municipal Pier in accordance with 
the provisions of section 1 of the 
said ordinance, and as the emergen- 
cy which then existed, necessitat- 
ing the establishment of a restau- 
rant on the Pier has passed, no 
necessity for a restaurant on the 
Pier will confront the council un- 
til next summer. During the in- 
terval an opportunity will be af- 
forded the law department of the 
City of Chicago to suggest amend- 
ments 'to the statute authorizing 
the construction of the Municipal 
Pier, so as to give, the council great- 
er power to legislate in connection 
with the recreation features of the 
Pier. * 

I, therefore, recommend that tho 
vote by wihich the said ordinance 
was passed be reconsidered, and that 
the same be referred back to the 
appropriate committee for the pur- 
pose of taking the entire subject- 
matter up with the law department 
of the city. 

Respectfully submitted,

nance was passed by the City Coun- 
cil (Council Proceedings, page 
1429) providing for the vacation of

■ all public alleys in the two blocks 
bounded by West Forty-first street, 
Root 'street, Wallace street and 
South Union avenue, and requiring 
James S. Agar to dedicate certain 
other premises to the public for 
use as an 'alley and to pay to the 
City of Chicago the sum of $13,796. 

On the same day, an ordinance 
was also passed by the City Coun- 
cil (Council Proceedings, page 
1416), authorizing James S. Agar 
to construct railroad switch tracks 
upon part of this property and the 
adjacent streets. 

Protests have been received from 
the property owners whose prop- 
erty is affected by the two ordi- 
nances in question against your 
signing these ordinances. 

At their request a hearing has 
]3een held in this otTice for the pur- 
pose of affording them an oppor- 
tunity to state the grounds upon 
whiC'h their protests are based. It 
appeared that representations were 
made to the Aldermen that all of 
the property affected by the ordi- 
nances had been acquired by pur- 
chase or was held under options, 
but after the ordinances were 
paftsed, the options which had been 
obtained were allowed to expire 
without the right of purchase hav- 
ing been exercised. 

The following property owners, 
upon whose property options h^d 
been obtained which were not exer- 
cised, object to the two ordinances 
in question going into effect: 

John Coakley, 4107 Union avenue. 

James J. McPhillips, 4123 Union 
avenue. 

W. H. Thompson, 4127 Union 
avenue. 

B. R. Boylan, 4111-13 Union ave- 
nue. 

Mary Dunn, 4125 Union avenue. 
P. F. West, 4121 Union avenue. 
Lindsey Morrison, 4199 Union 
avenue. 



Michael Larner, 4101-3 Union 
avenue. 

Thontius 0. Rourke, 656-58 Root 
street. 

Objections to the signing of the 
ordinances were made also by the 
following property owners whose 
property is affected by the ordi- 
nances, although options to pur- 
chase had not been obtained: 

Julius Aagaard, 600-02-04-06 
Root street. 

Captain Sweeney, 4200-02-06-08- 
10-12-14-16-18-20-22 Union ave- 
nue. 

James J. Woulfe, 655-57-59 Root 
street. 

The property owners above men- 
tioned state that the vacation of the 
alleys and the operation of the 
switch tracks adjoining their prop- 
erty as, provided by the ordinances 
would seriously injure their prop- 
erty, and in view of the fact that 
the grantee has not acquired this 
property as he represented he 
would do, we believe', that the ordi- 
nances should not go into effect. 
We therefore recommend that they 
be vetoed. 

Very truly yours,

Office of the Mayor,] 
Chicago, October 2, 1916.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body at 
the last regular meeting fixing the 
rate of compensation to be allowed 
to employes of the City of Chicago 
who own and operate automobiles 
in the performance of their duties. 

I am in receipt of a report from 
the Commissioner of Gas and Elec- 
tricity, which I transmit herewith, 
in which it is pointed out that a 
number of employes in that depart- 
ment refuse to operate their auto- 
mobiles at the rate of compensation 
fixed in the order referred to. In 
the event of their failure to so do, 
the lighting of the City of Chicago 
would be seriously endangered, un- 
less some means were at hand of 
handling the work assigned to these 
men. The Commissioner of Gas 
and Electricity points out in his re- 
port the necessity of taking some 
action in the event that the auto- 
mobiles as at present operated are 
displaced. For these reasons I 
recommend the reference of the 
subject to your Committee on 
Finance for further oonsideration 
and report. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

since installiation of meter as a

would be derived under meter rates 
would amount to $101.25, while the 
amount that would be derived on 
frontage basis is $56.63.

"Fire Prevention Day"; Proclama- 
tion. 

ALSO, "^ 

The following proclamation, 
\Yhich was ordered placed on file: 
Office of the Mayor,| 
Chicago, September 27, 1916, | 
Rising from the ruins of her his- 
Itoric fire of 1871, Chicago has be- 
come one of the greatest cities of 
the world, throughout which she 
is renowned for her resourceful- 
ness, initiative and progress. De- 
termined that her misfortune of al- 
most complete destruction from 
fire should serve rather as a step- 
ping stone to better civic conscious- 
ness, she set October 9th to be ob- 
served as "Fire Prevention Day." 
Chicago's example has been fol- 
lowed year by year by cities and 
States throughout the country in 
inereti«ing number until we find 
the, day given National recognition 
in 4he resolution of the Interna- 



tional Association of Fire Engine- 
ers at their recent annual meeting 
at Providence, R. I., where October 
9th was named as the fitting date 
for the observation of "Fire Pre- 
vention Day" throughout the 
United States. 

Through various civic organiza- 
tions, public spirited citizens and 
municipal effort, Chicago has al- 
ready made considerable progress 
toward the lessening of the per 
capita fire loss, but much more can 
be accomplished by persistent ef- 
fort on ithe part of its citizens. The 
loss of life and property by fire 
is still great and is a constant 
drain upon our resources, but it is 
evident that it may be diminished 
by proper safeguards, as the 
United States Government, after 
careful investigation ;has asserted 
through its Geological Survey that 
more than half of the fire loss is 
easily preventable. 

Great steps are being taken in 



1522 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



October 2, 1916. 



Chicago to minimize the loss hy 
fire. Last year, despite the in- 
crease in population and the con- 
sequent increase in buildings, the 
fire loss decreased nearly $1,500,- 
000. The decrease in the fire loss 
for the first quarter of this year 
under that lof the corresponding 
period of last year is $272,565, the 
per capita loss being cut from 
sixty-seven cents to fifty-eight 
cents. 

In order to call this to the at- 
tention of the people of Chicago, 
therefore I, William Hale Thomp- 
son, Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
do hereby designate and proclaim 
October 9th, 1916, as "Fire Preven- 
tion Day," and urge that on this 
day and for five days thereafter 
owners of property and all other 
good citizens, especially organiza- 
tions such as the Association of 
Commerce, Civic Co-Operators and 
the like having the welfare of our 
city at heart, give special atten- 
tion to the correction of all fire 
breeding conditions; that the atten- 
tion of school officials and all pub- 
lic authorities be directed upon this 
iday and for five days thereafter 
to the widespread losses by fire, 
and that they urge upon those in 
their charge to use every effort to 
the end that needless sacrifi-ce of 
human lives and property losses 
may be checked. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Gentlemen — We transmit here- 
with verdict of the Coroner's jury 
in the case of the death of Frank 
Stafford, containing recommenda- 
tion that the City Council pass an 
ordinance providing for the plac- 
ing of a white circular line at in- 
tersections where street cars oper- 
ate on curves. 

The following is the report sub- 
mitted by Engineer Dailey, of the 
Bureau of Streets, concerning this 
matter : 

"The roadway at State and 
Randolph streets, where Frank 
Stafford was killed is 48 feet 
wide. There is a single car 
track in the center of the 
street, leaving a distance of 21 
feet 8 inches from the curb to 
the gauge of the rail. It ap- 
pears that this man was killed 
as the street car rounded the 
corner. In all oases where cars 
operate on curves there is con- 
siderable overhang on both 
ends of cars, which is danger- 
ous, ^as there is nothing to in- 
dicate how far cars overhang 
the rails. 

"I concur in the recom- 
mendation of the Coroner's jury 



in the case of the death of 
Frank Stafford, which is that 
the City Council pass an ordi- 
ance requiring the mainten- 
ance of a white circular line 
at intersections where street 
cars operate on cur\"es, so that 
pedestrians may be informed 
regarding the zone of danger 
at such points."

Gentlemen — I transmit here- 
with .an ordinance amending an 
ordinance passed by the City Coun- 
cil on March 29, 1915, regulating 
the manufacture, storage, use, sale 
or distribution, of inflammable 
liquids. Prior to the passage of 
said ordinance the amount of gaso- 
line that could be stored under any 
public alley was limited to three 
hundred (300) gallons. In the con- 
sideration of the new ordinance no 
special limitation was fixed for this 
class of tanks. The enclosed 
amendment restores the old limita- 
tion, and the consideration of the 
same at an early date is urgently 
recommended, as I do not believe 
that it is good policy to allow the 
storage of .an unlimited amount of 
gasoline under any public highway.

Chicago, September 27, 1916,J 
To the Honorable, the Mayor and 
the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith 
for consideration by your Honor- 
able Body an ordinance .amending 
the ordinance regulating the use of 
space under sidewialks and openings 
in the surface of the sidewalk over 
same. 

Under the ordinance now in ef- 
fect persons who have transferred 
or sold tifche premises for which a 
permit has been issued for the 
maintenance of trapdoors and coal- 
holes in the sidewalk may secure 
the release of thei bond executed 
to protect the City by notifying the 
Commisisioner of Public Works of 
the transfer of the property and 
furnishing him with the name and 
address of the purchaser. The City 
is then i^equired to secure a new 
bond from the purchase'r of the 
property in order to protect itself 
from any accidents which may oc- 
cur. The Department has found 
it exceedingly difficult to secure 
compliance by the purchaser who 
in most instances, takes the posi- 
tion that the openings were not con- 
structed in the sidewalk by him, 
and therefore, he has no interest 
in the sarnie nor does be care to 
assume any liability for them, with 
the result that the City is com- 
pelled to start suit for failure to 
comply with the ordinance, the out- 
come of which would be very 
doubtful, or take steps to close the 
openings at its own expense. 

The proposed amendment makes 
it necessary for the holder of the 



1542 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

loriginal permit to c\o&& up the 
openings upon the transfer of the 
property in order to secure a re- 
lease, or arrange with the purchas- 
er of the property to file a new 
bond and secure a new permit for 
the privilege; in other words, place 
the burden upon the property own- 
er, who has s'ecured the benefit of 
the privilege, rather than upon the 
City which has received no bene- 
fit, except a very small permit fee. 

Early consideration of the 
amendment is urged.

ring of one, (1) inch internal 
diameter. Said layer of broken 
granite or trap rock shall be rolled 
with a roller of ten (10) tons weight 
until the same is brought to a true 
and uniform surface, after which 
asphaltic cement in the proportion 
of one and one-half (11/2) gallons to 
each square yard of surface shall be 
poured over it in such a manner as 
to thoroughly and uniformly coat 
the granite or trap. rock. At the 
time of the application of said as- 
phaltic cement the granite or trap 
rock must be in a dry condition. 

Immediately after applying the 
asphaltic cement, the surface shall 
be covered with dry granite or trap 
rock free from dirt, crushed to a 
size that will pass through a ring 
of one-half (%) inch internal 
diameter and be held on a ring of 
one-fourth (%) inch internal diam^ 
eter, in sufficient quantity so as to 
fill all the interstices in the above 
course and then shall be thoroughly 
rolled with a roller of ten (10) tons 
weight until the said granite or trap 
rock is thoroughly bonded in this 
layer. 

The roadways shall then be swept 
and any excess of granite or trap 
rock removed, after which asphaltic 
cement in the proportion of one- 
half (1/^) gallon to each square yard 
of surface shall be poured over the 
same. The surface of the pavement 
shall then receive a one-fourth (i/4) 
inch dressing of granite or trap rock 
screenings, free from dust. 

The entire surface of the road- 
ways as thus improved, shall then 
be rolled with a roller of ten (10) 



tons weight until the same is' thor- 
oughly bonded, and of a true, uni- 
form and unyielding surface. The 
thickness of said layer when bonded 
as herein described shall be two and 
one-half (2^^) inches. 

The asphaltic cement shall com- 
ply with the following require- 
ments' : 

The asphaltic cement shall have 
a specific gravity at seventy-seven 
(77) degrees Fahrenheit of not less 
than ninety-seven one-hundredths 

(^97). 

The bitumen of the asphaltic 
cement shall be soluble in carbon 
tetra chloride to the extent of at 
least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent. 

The melting or softening point of 
the asphaltic cement .shall be not 
less than one hundred (100) de- 
grees Fahrenheit nor more than one 
hundred and thirty-five (135) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The asphaltic cement shall have 
a penetration of from eighty (80) 
to one hundred and fifty (150) de- 
grees, which shall be varied within 
these limits to adaptj it to the par- 
ticular asphalt and flux used, and 
to conditions of the streets. 

When fifty (50) grams of the as- 
phaltic cement of the consistency 
used in the paving mixture are 
heated for five (5) hours at a tem- 
perature of three hundred and 
twenty-five (325) degrees Fahren- 
heit, in a tin box two and one- 
quarter (2^/4) inches in diameter, 
there must not be volatilized more 
than five (5)' per cent of the 
bitumen, nor shall the penetration 
after such heating be less than one- 
half {V2) the original penetration. 

A briquette of the asphaltic ce- 
ment of a consistency equivalent to 
eighty (80) penetration shall have 
a ductility of at least ten (10) 
centimeters. 

The asphaltic cement used in the 
above proposed improvement shall 
be applied at a temperature of not

ly as possible; 

Therefore, it is ordered. That

Chicago, Oct. 10, 1916. 
To the Mayor and Aldermen of (he 
City of Chicago in City Council 
Assembled: 

Your Committee on Finance, to 
whom was referred matter of stand- 
ardization of fire apparatus, having 
had the same under advisement, beg 
leave )to report and recommend that 
the following report be published 
and placed on file. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John A. Richert, 

Chairman. 

Unanimous consent was given for 
consideration of said report. 

Aid. Richert moved to concur in 
said report. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report 
recommended for publication in the 
foregoing report: 

Standardization of Fire Apparatus. 

Memorandum for Committee on 
Finance : 

July 13, 1916. 

The Committee, consisting of 
George W. Booth, Chief Engineer, 
National Board of Fire Underwrit- 
ters, of New York City; Fitzhugh 
Taylor, Mechanical Engineer, Un- 
derwriters' Laboratory, Chicago; 
Frank F. Holmes, Chicago Board of 
Underwriters; Thomas O'Connor, 
Fire Marshal; James Miles and F.~ 
H. Cenfield, acting as secretary; have 
come ito the following conclusions 
with reference to standardizing, 
wholly or in part, types of motor 
driven fire apparatus. 

1. That, owing to constant im- 
provemento, particularly in motor 
operated fire engines, it is not 
feasible or practicable at this 
time to adopt any standard type. 

2. That the experience of other 
cities, particularly in New York, 
and the experience here in tthe 
operation and maintenance of 
motor apparatus, is not sufiicient 



1728 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



October 10, 1916. 



to base any conclusions of stan- 
dardization thereon. 

3 That it will not be practica- 
ble or economical for the city to 
engage in the construction of a 
standard type of motor pumping 
engine, though it may be feasible 
to assemble standard type of hose 
wagons, supply wagons, and squad 
wagons. 

4. That it doubtless will be pos- 
sible to adopt the New York idea 
of standardizing certain parts, 
such as wheels, axles, etc. 

5. That a careful cost record 
system be kept at the shop in the 
nature of a history card for each 
piece of motor apparatus, show- 
ing initial cost, cost of repairs, 
length of time out of service, 
cause of repairs, delays in mak- 
ing repairs, and the parts in 
which trouble is found. 

6. That the practice of the de- 
partment in standardizing on Ford 
cars for the battalion chiefs is a 
correct one, but that consideration 
should be given to their exchange 
for new cars periodically. 

7. The Committee was unani- 
mous in the above conclusions, 
and it is believed that by a care- 
ful analysis at the close of the 
present year of the cost record 
system which is now being in- 
stalled, more definite conclusions 
can be arrived at. 

Mr. Booth and Mr. Taylor have 
given their services without com- 
pensation, and no expense of any 
kind has been incurred. Both are 
well recognized expert engineers in 
fire equipment, and Mr. Booth is a 
national authority on fire apparatus.
